Cape to Cairo

Ever since I learned as a schoolboy about the British imperialist Cecil John Rhodes and his vision of the Great North Road from Cape to Cairo, I have dreamed of driving the length of Africa, earth’s second largest continent.

They not only carry an extensive collection of various engine sizes and power levels for Volkswagens, but they also specialize in all kinds of German machinery, from BMWs to Audis...

Busses, Things and the occasional buggy rounded out a great sightseeing excursion in trying to see as many old VW’s as possible. Here are only a few of the Mexican Beetle’s we captured...

Volkswagon ending New Beetle production

Ending the string of “New” cars with old names;Dodge Charger, Ford Mustang, New Beetle, the new Beetle is ending production this year. I personally can’t stand this glut of redesigning the style of the old car with newer lines and luxuries. Just call the car another name, please! Call these new cars by a new name, because...
